A woman says she's had it after becoming the victim of a dangerous teenage prank.
"This has got to stop," said Nancy Llanas, who was driving south on Eastern Avenue Thursday when a group of kids threw rocks at her car.
She says she's lucky to be alive after one of the larger rocks landed with a thud on her windshield, cracking it.
"I was shocked, saw the big circle [on the windshield], looked in my rearview window and could see the children," she said. "Saw a couple hands raised and some cheers."
The incident has her disappointed and concerned for her neighborhood.
"It feels bad," Llanas said. "I'm a member of this community and those children are as well. I just want to remind parents to have a talk with their children. We all have a responsibility in the safety and welfare of our community members."
Police say there have been a handful of reports of rock-throwing recently, and it's difficult to catch the suspects.
